This is an update of a previous post: Printable Animal Masks
We had a great Halloween! Nola as Frog Princess, Gunner as Finn the Human, and me as (at least half of) Lady Rainicorn!
UPDATE: There is now a PDF available to download for these masks!
Today, Nola asked me if she could be a tiger. I told her she could not draw on herself with that black Sharpie she had in her hands from who-knows-where. Thankfully, she asked first! Needless to say, I had dashed her little two-year-old dreams to bits, and the dejected look on her face damn near broke my heart. So I asked if she would like a tiger mask instead, and she was so excited about it she was literally jumping up and down in anticipation. “Yeah, yeah, yeah!!”
I Googled “printable Tiger Mask”, and from the results found a really cool-looking one, which led me to an Angelfire page called “Child’s Play” FULL of printable animal masks! We printed out ten different animals, and they are beautiful! The kids are having a blast, and no Sharpie on the toddler.
I couldn’t wait to Pin it — but, lo-and-behold, “no pinnable images”. What the spark?! So, I decided post a blog entry, complete with pinnable thumbnail preview, and direct readers to this great resource.
I made the costumes for both kids this year and actually finished them. Several stuffed animals (and one leather handbag) were sacrificed to make Nola’s barbarian costume. Her boots were the cutest part, but you can’t really see them in any of the pictures. Nola the Destroyer!
